Stimulus dependence and cross-modal interference in sequence learning

Published in: The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, Volume 70, Issue 12, 2535-2547 Abstract "A central issue in sequence learning is whether learning operates on stimulus-independent abstract elements, or whether surface features are integrated, resulting in stimulus-dependent learning. Using the serial ...

Inhibition in task switching: The reliability of the n − 2 repetition cost

Published in: The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, Volume 70, Issue 12, 2419-2433 Abstract "The n − 2 repetition cost seen in task switching is the effect of slower response times performing a recently completed task (e.g. an ABA sequence) compared to performing ...
